You guys are going to get a picture show today. I’m fighting off a headache and I got a late start. Fortunately there are visual aids to help me along. Dan and I walked the river loop that I (nearly) took Carol on when she came to visit. (Remember the one where we saw a little boy dangerously close to the bank?)
The weather was absolutely gorgeous, moderately warm but not overly hot. I still got sweaty, but I’d planned for that, so it wasn’t a big deal. And there was enough of a breeze that I wasn’t too uncomfortable when we headed off to get our groceries later.
From this bridge our backs are to Skinner’s Butte and that bump you can see downriver is Spencer’s. We even have a local run called The Butte To Butte. Because, ya know, it IS Track Town USA. Oh and feast your eyes upon this, there’s even (painted) evidence of that fact.
For your Daily Dog we return you to the front deck. (Max lets himself in and out of the screen door now, the better to keep track of all things important out there, and to sprawl in the glorious sunshine.)
On our card altar my working deck handed over a pointedly positive message which leaves no room for doubt, we are certainly on the upswing.
Ace of Swords
In some definitions this one is called Victory, while in others the name is Triumph. Doesn’t matter what the title says, it’s a good one. As Aces always are.
Singularly focused on their suits, the Aces are always aimed, directed, and powerful. In the case of Swords, that is even MORE true. Words and paperwork, thinking and examining, Air and Mind, any and all things important and verbal/cerebral. The way a blade or a feather slice and glide, that is the goal-achieving movement of Swords, and for us.
Champions and leaders often think their way into these positions as much as fight physically (or metaphorically). So when we see this card it paves the way for us to carry those traits. It’s a winner, that’s the bottom line. Consequently, so are we.
